Just got done installing nerfs do you cut/burn the ends?

Hey guy 1st post but have been doing some reading on this site for a few weeks after picking up m 700xx and am now starting to mod it. I bought these Honda racing nerfs and they did bolt right on without issue but there is all kinds of excess strap hanging out the bottom. Am I supposed to cut and burn these straps or just let em hang? How loose is the netting supposed to be?

I let it hang about 1 1/2" below where my foot goes under the shifter. It really is a preference for you and how loose you can tolerate it.

what about the excess strap that hangs below the bike? It just looks tacky which is what made me think of the cut and burn idea, Is that what most do with th excess strap? cut and burn?

Yes, Mine wasn't that bad. I only had about 1-2 inches left over and I left it alone.

You could Spend the $44 and get the Weller 8200 with a Hot Knife attachment. Or if you have a sodering Iron see if they make a attachment for it.

I was thinking scissors and bic lighter? Its odd that there is so much extra string, I tried making it to where it just wasn't hanging but the net was sagging so bad like that I had to move it back. As it is if I don't cut it I wonder if itll get caught on a tree or some crap.

Iwould ride the 700xx a couple of times , Too make sure you have enough space for your foot on the shifter and brake pedal. Once you have the tension set right then you could cut them. I personally put the straps through from the bottom of the brackets , so all the loose is on top and not hanging down. It looks neater without trimming.

Baxter,
Great idea. I think your solution is the best. After installing my nerfs I wanted to trim the excess nylon straps but decided to just leave them alone. The scissors came to mind but sealing the ends of the straps with a lighter brought waves of apprehension. I could just see my new machine disappearing in a ball of flame.
Again thanks for the tip.
Sid

You would want to leave some hang anyway due to the fact that if you have to ever take them off for any reason (I can't think of one but you never know), then you would never be able to get them back on if you trimmed to much off. I don't know how much slack you have, but my Pro-Armor's probably only have 2-3 inches at the most on any strap, and I dont see how it is a problem at all except for cleaning the mud off. It is not like it can get caught in your wheel or anything. However, i do like Baxter's idea as well.
